Writing terrifies me–the act of putting my deepest feelings and thoughts on paper and then offering them up to the world makes me ill. At the same time, these same acts invigorate and empower me. This dichotomy resonates with so many other aspects of my life that I just have to hold my nose, squeeze my eyes shut, let go, and brace myself for impact.
Please check out my writer’s webpage: http://pamelahelberg.com
where I am practicing overcoming my fears, one small bit of memoir at a time.
My hope is that with time, I won’t have to hold my nose and squeeze my eyes closed, that I’ll be able to participate fully, my senses primed and ready to welcome what comes.
This story belongs to me. Others may write their own.
